the players, too?

25 called passing plays in the second half, 6 called running plays - in what was at most a one score game in either direction when ND started with the ball. ND averaged 5.8 yards per run in the game.

Here's the plays called on the last two series:

Pass ND Down 28-21; 9:36 remaining
RB run
Pass

Pass ND Down 28-21; 3:58 remaining

Pass Intentional grounding

If you're going to fault Rees for playing a bad game, then shouldn't you also fault the guy who put the game squarely on his shoulders?
